And what better way to relax afterwards than with a good beer? After we got home, put away the gear, and cleaned up, I brought out a bottle of Brooklyn Local 2. (Obviously my young son sat this part out.) The beer was enjoyed with olivada and humus. Local 2 is a very nice Belgian Strong Dark Ale with notes of dark fruit, raisons and brown sugar. We've had this bottle for over a year and being a bottle re-fermented ale, it's aged very nicely. Having split the corked and caged bottle three ways, my only regret was the basement stash consisted of just one bottle.
Shooting and craft beer are two things we enjoy quite frequently. As with many things in life, there's a proper of order of things, and the two never mix. But there's no reason we can't make a day of both.
